How do I install ALT?

The following will describe the steps necessary to install ALT from your computer from media supplied on DropBox or otherwise.

Select the SetupALTxx.msi that is correct for your operating system, 32 or 64 bit versions of Windows.

If you are unsure of which version of Windows is on your computer you can follow this link for additional information.

To install ALT on your PC, please follow these steps:

Run SetupALT32.msi or SetupALT64.msi according to the operating system in use. These are not interchangeable. To ensure that the MSI file has open access to system files right click the SetupALTxx.msi and select "run as administrator". This is a one-time change during the installation only.
